  Cancer and comorbidity: impact of comorbid conditions on equity of access and safety and outcomes of cancer treatments
  Prof J van der Meulen, Prof A Hutchings, Prof D Cromwell, Prof E Nolte
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The configuration of cancer services is rapidly changing. Service delivery is being re-designed in order to diagnose cancer earlier, accelerate access to treatment, improve patients’ experience, reduce side-effects of treatment and enhance cures for cancer.
  Machine Learning regulation at the 3’ UTR
  Dr C Miller
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The 3’ Untranslated Region (UTR) of a transcript presents a complex set of binding sites that are used to regulate both transcript stability and downstream protein translation.

  Carbon Nanotubes Mediated Drug Delivery in 3D cancer models
  Dr H Ali-Boucetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current treatment with anticancer drugs suffers from the drawbacks of systemic toxicity, drug resistance and limited cellular entry.
  Neuropeptide Research - PhD Opportunity at a World Class Institution
  Assoc Prof M Muttenthaler, Assoc Prof I Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for the following multidisciplinary project. Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  Synthetic/chemical biology approaches to identify novel interactions in the DNA-damage response
  Prof S Smerdon, Prof R Owens
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The DNA-damage response (DDR) is underpinned by a complex set of signalling pathways involving interactions that are often regulated by post-translation modifications (PTMs).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Dissecting the function of long non-coding RNAs during neuronal differentiation and neuronal diseases
  Dr J Aspden, Dr G Hautbergue, Dr J Fontana
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst 85% of our genome is transcribed, only 4% is protein-coding. In fact, many non-coding RNAs exist, some of which are similarly processed to mRNAs, termed long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Elucidating Disease Mechanisms using New Approaches to Capture Transient Protein Complexes in the Mitochondria
  Prof L-Y Lian, Prof A J Wilson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Its malfunction is the cause of many diseases, ranging from cancer to heart and neurological diseases, which become more prevalent with age.
  Chromatin remodelling in health and disease
  Dr R Gibbons, Prof D Higgs
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become apparent that the regulation of chromatin structure is of paramount importance in a wide variety of fundamental nuclear processes including gene expression, DNA replication, repair and recombination.

  Characterisation of the role of the adhesion protein tensin 3 in breast cancer progression
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer arises from the transformation of mammary epithelial cells. In the healthy tissue, these grow as a single monolayer of cells delimiting an internal hollow lumen 2.
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Metabolic control of T cell function
  Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current research interests in Sarah Dimeloe’s lab focus on the metabolism and interlinked immune function of T lymphocytes in health and disease.
